The Summer Reading Challenge invites children to read six books during the school holidays.

Each child will receive a membership pack, prizes and, on completion, a special certificate. The theme is the ‘Big Friendly Read’ based on the 100th anniversary of ‘Big Friendly Giant’ author Roald Dahl’s birthday.

Sleaford Library has a host of activities for children, with Big Friendly Chatterbook Wednesdays from July 27 to August 31, craft activities on July 28, August 11 and September 2, plus a colouring competition for Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday. There will also be Monday story times and a Challenge Certificate presentation ceremony to coincide with Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. Kay Ablard, Library Team Leader, said the challenge helps prevent children’s reading skills dipping over the holidays in a fun way.
